Today I am sharing with you another steampunk project using one of the cheap mirrors from Ikea.
I removed the mirror by gently heating the back of the mirror so the glue became fluid before painting back and front with black Gesso. Once this was dry I then stencilled over the frame of the mirror with clocks and cogs stencils with modelling paste. Once this was dry I then painted over with IndigoBlu Raven Black metallic paint.
I then arranged an assortment of Cogs from Things to Alter, nuts and blots, metal cogs and a zip flower. Gave this all another coat of raven black. Once this was all dry I then dry brushed Goldfinger metallic paint over the whole of the frame which highlights the stencilling as well as the raised embellishments.
I printed off the image from Steampunk II by Debbie Moore.
A close up of the embellishments.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Altered Eclectics - AG Mixed Media
Rhedds Creative Spirits - AG Mixed Media
More Mixed Media - AG Optional use Black
Until next time - Happy Crafting
